    • Wonder if my hair was growing
    • Shampoo or co-wash my hair daily
    • Detangle daily
    • Deep condition twice a week
    • Wear a puff every day when I could pull my hair back

    I used to:

    -Go to sleep with wet hair and sleep on a drenched pillow bc...I still don't know why i did that :/

    -Walk around with wet hair all day bc i wanted to leave in my conditioner and get curly ends

    - use my mom's eggs and mayonnaise to deep condition

    -wear headbands every day

    -never detangled

    -ripped my braids aloose instead of patiently starting at the ends and going upward

    - wondered why i looked bad lol

    now that all of those not so great habits are out the way..i dont get wtf looks anymore; i get compliments! takes time dude. takes time.

    Walked around looking a HAM because all I did was pick it out dry :shudders:

    I would have become a pj, but being a broke college student saved me from that particular disease

    I completely understand! Oils make my scalp itch like mad too You more than likely will notice a difference (my scalp is 99% better!!!!!!!!! Now, I still use oils but not on my scalp. My hair really likes oils, but, my scalp despises them. So, I'm just careful not to use too much and keep clear of my scalp. I just mix approximately 3-5% various oils with my leave in...and so far...so good! (but...that was after giving my scalp a break from oils completely) Much success to you!!!!

    I used to use all Miss Jessie's products. I then realized that I like other products better

    I used to oil my scalp like crazy, but realized it was causing a very itchy scalp.

    I used to cowash and no poo. Now I use a low sulfate because I get a lot of build up.

    I used to shingle my TWA. Boy was that a joke lol

    *Pick my hair out everyday(I had this thing for the perfectly round fro)
    *twist and untwist my hair almost everyday, without the intent of wearing a twistout(since I picked my hair out daily)...where was I getting this time and patience?! I'm talking lots of twists since my hair was short.
    *be scared that I'd never learn how to care for my hair
    *Always wore earrings(they were cute but I'm glad I feel comfy without them now)
    *Put too much oil in my hair and mess up my pillow

    And honestly I still feel somewhat new! I'll be year two at the end of July and I am just starting to hit my stride. Definitely only starting...

    I also used to:

    Keep a journal of my hair's trials and triumphs on my old computer.

    I'd go in and document things like products, techniques, styles, goals....

    I'd put the date and each entry would be in different colors

    ...before hair blogging REALLY blew up...


    ........

    I'd love to get my old comp and read those entries...see how far i've come.

    Now, I have a cute lil pink journal that I write in

    Go to work with oil dripping down the side of my face because I used too much

    Spent waaay too much money in expensive products before I learned that homemade products work better

    Put to many products in my hair and too much (a little goes a long way)
